My hozelock auto reel has stopped locking. Have tried pulling it all the way out and then releasing but it does not solve the problem.


40 meter Hozelock auto reel would not lock when winding back into the drum.
1, Make sure the Hozelock hose has fully retracted into the drum.there should be no tension on the hose reel spring.
2, Use a Black & Decker Workmate.
3, Carefully opened the side cover taking out all of the Torx screws (10 in total) remove handle.
4, Turned the reel over and placed the auto reel onto the Black & Decker Workmate.
5, Placed a socket into the Workmate vice then line up the centre shaft bolt on the auto reel onto the socket, this will hold the steel spring in place so that I could undo the 2 security Torx screws. Slowly remove the 2 screws- there will be a little spring tension when removing the 2 screws, take care.
6, Lever up the centre shaft up out of the reel to expose the internal hose reel, take note the rotation of the plastic cog inside the cover.
7, Remove the brake locking arm from the side cover.
the arm had broken in half, I used a soldering iron to weld the two halves of the brake lever back together.
8, Rebuild in reverse order.
8, When rebuilding the auto reel use the ratchet and socket to tension the steel spring, I unwound the hose out of the drum then slowly wound the spring using the ratchet and socket. This wound in the hose onto the drum up to the hose stop then a couple more turns on the ratchet for a little more tension.
9, Whilst holding the ratchet keeping the tension on the spring. Replace the 2 security screws on the centre shaft .
10, This link on Youtube I found very helpful (46 sec into video) you can see the internal working and the brake lever.

Shimano recommends that you use PermaLube. I use it and it's great for my reel. Here is a video on Shimano reel maintenance.

Does not flip arm to lock to reel in line


Normally when you **** the bail, the reel allows you to discharge the line with a flip of the wrist. Then when you touch the crank and execute half a turn it releases the bail to lock the line and allow you to reel in. If this action is not happening, then the release pawl is stuck and holding the bail in place. You must disassemble the reel, clean the parts and re-assemble with proper lubrication. Checking the parts for wear replace all worn parts.

Reel is slipping when under strain on retreval making loud grating noise when this happens


It sounds like the gears are stripped. When the reel is under strain the body of the reel may flex and cause the gears to misalign and slip. These gears slipping and skipping may be the grinding sound you hear. Graphite body reels are more susceptable to body flex than metal body reels. Gears can also wear out due to lack of proper lubrication. Some manufacturers supply replacement parts for their higher end reels and the reel can be rebuilt with new gears. You will need to check with the manufacturer to see if it could be rebuilt. If it is an inexpensive reel then it will be much more cost effective to just replace the whole reel.

Hozelock Auto Reel


I took it apart by unscrewing the 2 halves of the plastic cover making sure the hose was fully wound up as the spring mechanism can be dangerous. Extreme care must be taken. I can now get lubrication on to the spring. The manufacturers will not tell you how to do this due to health and safety rules.
